“... these cutting-edge, collaborative robotic systems allow pipe welding tasks to be
done dramatically more effectively and efficiently!”

Seaspan’s Vancouver Drydock Company Ltd.North Vancouver, BC

“We’re doing 200 diameter inches/day and getting 100% x-ray quality and we think
we can get 300 with the right project.”

Pipe Fabrication Shop Foreman

“The SWR is doing us a good job. My team is happy”.

Pipe Fabrication Superintendent

“The SWR would be my choice because it really takes all the hard work away from welding... I feel pretty comfortable using it. The support is great, a lot of help through-
out. From the start they (Novarc’s team) have been there for everything.”

Welder (Second year apprentice)

“Since I am a welder, I know pretty well what somebody can get out of an 8 hour day;
I think we can triple that with the SWR!”

Shop Superintendent

“Once you get it dialed in, it’s the same weld every time with the same quality and con-
sistency. It (the SWR) is head over heels better than manual welding; more efficient, more production and like I said, the quality is amazing.”

Welder

“It’s a game-changer, and it’s welder friendly. We just have to figure out how to feed
the machine faster.”

Superintendent

”Novarc machine brings a new level of quality and consistency
with every weld as well as an embedded video of the weld into
the BIM model.”
